    Google Maps for iOS Gains Live Traffic Info for Buses, Transit Crowdedness Predictions

    Google today announced a major update for Google Maps on both Android and iOS, introducing new transit-related features.

    Google Maps will now provide details on live traffic delays for buses in places where real-time information doesn’t exist from local transit agencies, which will let Maps users see if a bus will be late, how long the delay might be, and how long travel might take.

    Me during my commute: MOVE. THAT. BUS.

    Now you can see real-time delays and how crowded your bus is on your way to work 🙌

    The app will provide details on exactly where delays are on the map so riders will know what to expect before getting on a bus.

    Along with live traffic information for buses, Google is adding crowdedness predictions for transit routes. Based on past ride information, Google Maps will offer up details on how crowded a bus, train, or subway is likely to be.

    The new Google Maps features are rolling out today on Android and iOS in close to 200 cities around the world.

    Oukitel previews C18 Pro in advance of April 20 debut

    OUKITEL’s newest phone, the WP6 is just hitting the market, but the device maker is already showcasing its next model. Indeed, the C18 Pro is on the horizon, and is expected to arrive in just a few days from now, April 20.Whereas the WP series is more for the rugged outdoor user type, the C series is the budget-minded line for less-demanding consumers. With that said, it does look to have a respectable amount of hardware and camera features.As more devices hit the market with multiple cameras, it has been suggested that some phone makers aren’t always truthful about their macro lenses. OUKITEL, for its part, figures to promote the C18 Pro around that very notion. Its slogan for the new handset? Divide true and fake.The C18 Pro is equipped with 16-megapixel main camera with an 8-megapixel wide angle, and 5-megapixel macro lens. And when some phone makers use AI algorithms to achieve macro shots, OUKITEL relies on the hardware.Other noteworthy details to look for in the C18 Pro include a 6.55 display and a 4,000mAh battery. In terms of performance, things should be pretty decent with 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, and Android 10.A preview video by OUKITEL (embedded below) demonstrates how the $149 C18 Pro fares against the pricier Xiaomi CC9 ProThe OUKITEL C18 Pro launches on April 20 with an introductory price of just $150.
